On July 5, police got a call from a cell phone in Florham Park, New Jersey. The accidental caller could be heard in the background, discussing marijuana, according to the cops.
Officers Brian Mensing and Kevin Langereis responded to the address, knocked on a door and heard a man say "the cops are here," according to a Louis C. Hochman at NJ.com.
They then saw a man later identified as Andrew Macfarlane, 22, pick up some items off a table and walk towards the rear of the home, officers said.
They kept knocking on the door, and Macfarlane finally answered it, letting them come in, according to the cops.
Macfarlane told the officers he had "butt dialed" 911 by mistake, police said.
The cops saw what they claimed looked like "marijuana residue" on the table; they investigated further and found the items Macfarlane had just removed from the table: A small bag of suspected marijuana, a cannabis grinder, and a pipe, according to officers.
Macfarlane was arrested, taken to the police station, and charged with possession of under 50 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to the police.
